The Sunday Times this week published a story about the tragic failed rescue of two hostages in Nigeria, using a Call of Duty soldier to illustrate the piece.

The character’s eyes have been blocked out for no good reason given than he’s a fictional video game persona and therefore not under threat from any enemy troops perusing the Sunday Times over a boiled egg and soldiers.
